Barn School

Julia Morgan lives in Victoria. Her journey began with her own son, who was non-verbal and diagnosed as severely autistic and is now an outgoing, talkative and confident little boy, a transformation that Julia credits to the horses because learning to connect with his environment more like a horse would. The connections between her son and horses inspired her to start the barn school. So, she can help the non-verbal students through the barn school.

Dark Black

In order for restaurants to succeed they need to ensure that they are keeping proper records of inventory, sales, and expenses. Current commercial options are complicated, expensive, and time- consuming. This leads to many people resorting to excel or other makeshift management systems. This is why Dirk Britton, our sponsor, is hoping to address these issues by streamlining the management process as much as possible through the web application he made called DarkBlack. Our project is to add a feature to this application that makes it even more complete and more helpful to its users.

Data³

Pacific Forestry Center has tasked Team Data 3 with developing a subsystem to efficiently disseminate remotely sensed data over the National Forest Information System using Open Geospatial Consortium APIs, and implement a cutting-edge Open Data Cube raster database. This subsystem will enhance the ability of the NFIS to share analysis-ready data with forestry researchers across Canada. It is a great pleasure for our team to work with Pacific Forestry Centre on this project.

The group is called Key12, and was actually formed in summer of 2017 (minus Chase) for ICS 199. The members created a database-driven site that “sold” video games for download. Chase was added to the group in January 2018.
